Tom Swift and His Aerial Warship, or, the Naval Terror of the Seas


Published August 9, 2007


Tom Swift is an inventor, and these are his adventures. The locale is the little town of Shopton in upstate New York, near Lake Carlopa. While some of Tom's inventions are not well-founded in a scientific sense, others elaborated developments in the news and in popular magazines aimed at young science and invention enthusiasts. Presenting themselves as a forecast of future possibilities, they now and then hit close to the mark. Some predicted inventions that came true include "photo telephones", vertical takeoff aircraft, aerial warships, giant cannons, and "wizard" cameras. However some other devices, such as magnetic silencers for motors, have not appeared yet. -adapted from Wikipedia by Karen Merline

Subject: Good Story
Tom Swift and His Aerial Warship

Tom is an inventor. Like the other stories in the series this is an entertaining story. The story includes kidnapping and spies trying to steal one of Tom's inventions.

The books in the series are relatively short and are good stories for youths.
